Thread: News Summary from the Week that Was (25 – 31 August)

1. Time for another dose of the real news that the legacy media continually sweep under the rug because it doesn’t fit their “Republican bad, Democrats good” narrative.
2. Speaking of the legacy media, let’s start off with a look at all the former Obama regime CIA and FBI officials now working at CNN and MSNBC:

<quote>
2A. CNN added to its deep roster of former FBI and CIA officials-turned-analysts Friday with the hiring of Andrew McCabe, the former FBI deputy director fired for lack of candor during an investigation last year.
2B. McCabe is the tenth ex-FBI, CIA or intelligence community official CNN has hired during the Trump admin, according to a Daily Caller News Foundation analysis. MSNBC has followed closely behind, having hired five former officials, including former CIA Director John Brennan.
2C. Greenwald and others have noted the lopsided analysis offered up by the former officials, especially on the topic of the Trump-Russia probe.
2D. Most have hewed to their networks’ general viewpoint that Trump or his associates conspired with Russia. Others, like McCabe, Brennan, and former national intelligence director James Clapper, have all defended the investigation of the Trump campaign.
2E. They’ve maintained their defense even in the wake of the special counsel’s report, which debunked the theory that the Trump campaign conspired with Russia.

2F. Well, duh. People who pay attention know that the same people complicit in the conspiracy to take out @POTUS while in the Obama regime would of course want to spin things accordingly in hopes that they can avoid the hoosegow now. Ain’t gonna happen, girlfriend!
@POTUS 3. The chances of the points made in this next article being brought up at the next Democrat Star Wars bar scene “debate”? Zero!

<quote>
@POTUS 3A. As the Democratic presidential candidates argue about “Medicare for All” versus a “public option,” two simple policy changes could slash U.S. health-care costs by 75% while increasing access and improving the quality of care.
@POTUS 3B. These policies have been proven to work by ingenious companies like Whole Foods and innovative governments like the state of Indiana and Singapore. If they were rolled out nationally, the United States would save $2.4T per year across individuals, businesses, and the gov’t.
@POTUS 3C. The first policy—price tags—is a necessary prerequisite for competition and efficiency. Under our current system, it’s nearly impossible for people with health insurance to find out in advance what anything covered by their insurance will end up costing.
@POTUS 3D. Patients have no way to comparison shop for procedures covered by insurance, and providers are under little pressure to lower costs.
@POTUS 3E. Price tags also insure that everybody pays the same amount. We currently have a health-care system in which providers charge patients wildly different prices depending on their insurance.
@POTUS 3F. That injustice will end if we insist on legally mandated price tags and require that every patient be charged the same price.
@POTUS 3G. The second policy—deductible security—pairs an insurance policy that has an annual deductible with a health savings account (HSA) that the policy’s sponsor funds each year with an amount equal to the annual deductible.
@POTUS 3H. The policy’s sponsor can be either a private employer like Whole Foods (now part of Amazon), which has been doing this since 2002, or a government entity like the state of Indiana, which has been offering deductible security to its employees since 2007.
@POTUS 3I. Participants spend prudently because they know that any unspent HSA balances are theirs to keep. The result? Massively lower health-care spending without any decrement to health outcomes.
@POTUS 3J. [I]f we were to require price tags in addition to deductible security, the combined savings would amount to about 75% of what we are paying now for health care.
@POTUS 3K. We know this to be true because while price tags and deductible security were invented in the United States, only one country has had the good sense to roll them out nationwide.
@POTUS 3L. By doing so, Singapore is able to deliver universal coverage and the best health outcomes in the world while spending 77% less per capita than the United States ….
@POTUS 3L1. … and about 60% less per capita than the United Kingdom, Canada, Japan, and other advanced industrial economies.

@POTUS 3M. The legacy media are silent on this because they serve Democrats, all of whom apparently want “Medicare for All.” Disgraceful!
@POTUS 4. Then, the latest climate change scare (“The Amazon is on fire”!) is debunked – not that you’ll ever see it reported honestly by the leftwing legacy media:

<quote>
@POTUS 4A. The international news coverage of Brazil’s Amazon rainforest fires has been a complete disaster. News outlets published inaccurate yet easily verifiable “facts” about the number of fires, declaring the situation “record-breaking” and “unprecedented.”
@POTUS 4B. Social media lit up with misleading claims about the loss of planetary oxygen supply (20 percent, said French President Emmanuel Macron) threatening to asphyxiate us all.
@POTUS 4C. Stock photos and images of forest fires from the last two decades including Peru and Bolivia were shared widely and wildly. Celebrities and politicians alike heaped condemnation upon Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro leading to an ongoing geopolitical crisis.
@POTUS 4D. The initial reports about the beginning of fire season sent the international community into a panic, led by the Europeans. The number of fires and cumulative area burned so far in 2019, on the other hand, is on par with previous years and described as “near average” by NASA.
@POTUS 4E. Natural fire does not typically occur in these tropical forests due to suffocating humidity, wet dense foliage, and daily thunderstorms. What is burning right now is land near the forests where farmers and ranchers have cleared hundreds and hundreds of acres of trees.
@POTUS 4F. This is easily seen in satellite imagery, which scientists finally examined and compared to the past two decades.

@POTUS 4G. Yet another global warming climate disaster hoax exposed. Not a surprise at all!
@POTUS 5. The Chinese are being squeezed BIGLY on the economic front, and we should fully support the President’s actions, as this excellent opinion piece makes clear:

<quote>
@POTUS 5A. No one, including President Donald Trump, wants a trade war with China. Nonetheless, Americans should line up in support of his decision Friday to increase U.S. counter-tariffs on Chinese imports in response to China raising its tariffs on U.S. goods ….
@POTUS 5A1. … and that country's continuing refusal to abide by the norms of international trade and business practices.
@POTUS 5B. If our ongoing trade woes with China have revealed anything, it’s just how convoluted and corrupt our relationship with the People’s Republic has been for decades – ….
@POTUS 5C. and how badly we need to follow through on Trump’s counter-tariff strategy to give our government the most effective leverage.
@POTUS 5D. His aggressive trade policies and strategic counter-tariffs have revealed a basic truth that previous American leaders either failed to acknowledge or use to our advantage: China needs us more than we need China.
@POTUS 5E. All it took to make American companies realize the raw deal they and our country were getting was a series of strategic tariffs that still haven’t exceeded 30 percent. If you don’t think those tariffs are effective, just look at how Beijing reacted over the past week.
@POTUS 5F. China is hurting and it’s more than simply lost sales and a stalling economy.
@POTUS 5G. Companies, including some of the largest American retailers, are starting to flee China in droves. HP, Dell, Microsoft, Amazon and other American electronics giants are shifting production out of China.
@POTUS 5H. Even the crown jewel of American production in China, Apple, is reportedly looking for a better place to make its iPhones.
@POTUS 5I. The pressure Trump has imposed on China is working. Chinese manufacturing companies are reportedly getting “desperate” as the communist country experiences its first real economic pain in decades.
@POTUS 5J. Starting 30 years ago, the U.S.-China relationship went from bad to worse, even toxic. That the standoff continues shows how much is at stake.
@POTUS 5J1. Thankfully, Trump has demonstrated the fortitude to stay the course until this relationship is fixed – for good.

@POTUS 6. Hells bells! You mean the Trump Administration’s pressure on Mexico is actually bearing fruit at the border? Could have fooled me, given the legacy media’s silence on the subject!

<quote>
@POTUS 6A. Thousands of would-be illegal immigrants are being returned to await asylum hearings in Mexico as part of a program the Trump administration has credited with curbing the recent wave of family migration at the southwestern border.
@POTUS 6B. The Migrant Protection Protocols—more colloquially known as the "Remain in Mexico" policy—are regulations issued by former secretary of homeland security Kirstjen Nielsen in December 2018.
@POTUS 6C. Under the MPP, a subset of individuals who claim to be seeking asylum after being apprehended at the border now must await the results of their immigration court hearings in Mexico, rather than being detained—or, more often, released on their own recognizance—in the US.
@POTUS 6D. How effective have the MPP regulations actually been? New data released Monday by the nonpartisan Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC) show that the program has taken off in recent months.
@POTUS 6E. Nearly 12,000 people were returned to Mexico in July, compared with about 5,000 in May, and just 15 at the start of the year.
@POTUS 6F. The new data support Department of Homeland Security claims that a substantial drop in monthly apprehensions in June and July is partially attributable to the implementation of the MPP.

@POTUS 7. Paul Sperry did a great service by listing the classified documents that are being withheld by the FBI and intel agencies:

<quote>
@POTUS 7A. Agendas for former CIA chief John Brennan’s secret interagency task force meetings on alleged Trump-Russia collusion in the spring, summer and fall of 2016, which he sent in envelopes to ….
@POTUS 7A1. … FBI Director James Comey, Attorney General Loretta Lynch, and National Security Adviser Susan Rice.
@POTUS 7B. A series of papers that task force, known as the “fusion cell,” drafted for the White House.
@POTUS 7C. A classified August 2016 document Brennan hand-delivered in a sealed envelope to Obama containing information from someone Brennan described as "a critical informant close to Putin."
@POTUS 7C1. The informant is believed to have been a Russian source recycled from a largely debunked dossier compiled by ex-British agent Christopher Steele for the Hillary Clinton campaign.
@POTUS 7D. An email exchange from December 2016 between Brennan and Comey in which Brennan is said to have argued for using the Steele dossier in early drafts of the task force’s January 2017 intelligence assessment, ….
@POTUS 7D1. … which spread the narrative that Vladimir Putin personally ordered a hacking operation to harm Hillary Clinton’s election chances against Donald Trump.
@POTUS 7E. All drafts of the Russia intelligence assessment, or ICA, along with classified footnotes revealing the sourcing behind it.
@POTUS 7F. Confidential source reports, known as FD-1023s, summarizing briefings between FBI agents and the informants and assets they jointly handled with the CIA, including Christopher Steele, Felix Sater, Azra Turk, and ex-Cambridge professor Stefan Halper, ….
@POTUS 7F1. … who apparently lured Trump campaign advisers George Papadopoulos and Carter Page overseas, where he secretly tape-recorded them.
@POTUS 7G. Transcripts of conversations Halper recorded prior to July 31, 2016, in which Papadopoulos allegedly "denies any illegal conspiracy between the Trump campaign and Russia,” according to Florida Republican Rep. Matt Gaetz.
@POTUS 7H. Copies of all FBI, CIA and State Department records related to Joseph Mifsud, the mysterious Maltese professor whose statements regarding Papadopoulos allegedly triggered the original Russia-collusion probe.

@POTUS 7I. That was just a portion of the amazing list. Be sure to read the whole article.
@POTUS 8. And then John Solomon weighs in on “declassification,” too. Seems to me like there’s the start of a chorus on declassification these days!

<quote>
@POTUS 8A. But my reporting indicates three sets of documents from the Obama years should be declassified immediately, too, because they will fundamentally change the public’s understanding of history and identify ways to improve governance.
@POTUS 8B. The first includes the national security assessments that the U.S. intelligence community conducted under President Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton concerning the Russia nuclear giant Rosatom’s effort to acquire uranium business in the United States.
@POTUS 8C. Sources who have seen these classified assessments tell me they debunk the last administration’s storyline that there were no national security reasons to oppose Rosatom’s Uranium One purchase or Vladimir Putin’s successful efforts ….
@POTUS 8C1. … to secure billions of dollars in new nuclear fuel contracts with American utilities during the Obama years.
@POTUS 8D. A second body of documents crying out for declassification is Obama’s private correspondence with Iranian leaders — in particular, the Oct. 7, 2014, cable he penned to Iran’s Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, ….
@POTUS 8D1. … setting the terms for the controversial Washington-Tehran nuclear deal reached in early 2016.
@POTUS 8E. My sources tell me that letter conflicts with what the Obama [regime] was telling the American public as it tried to sell the deal politically, and it shows a level of courtship, concession and trust with Tehran that exceeded the U.S. intelligence assessments at the time.
@POTUS 8F. The final Obama-era tranche that requires declassification concerns Hillary Clinton’s email controversy — ….
@POTUS 8F1. … a highly classified set of documents that FBI agents identified as important and necessary in the investigation into whether she violated the law by transmitting classified emails on her unsecured private server.
@POTUS 8G. The Justice Department’s internal watchdog in 2018 provided Congress a classified annex explaining how the FBI intended to examine that secret evidence, but never did.
@POTUS 8H. Sources who have seen the annex say it contains explosive revelations about what really happened with Clinton’s emails and the national security concerns that her conduct raised.

@POTUS 8I. The headline says it all, folks: “change history”! It will be amazing watching the legacy media trying to spin these disclosures, assuming all three are made public!
@POTUS 9. Debunking Howard Zinn’s “.” Why has it taken 40 years to complete this task? We need to get this trash book out of our schools ASAP for the sake of our kids and the future of the Republic!

<quote>
@POTUS 9A. Another new book deserves a place on this stack to help minds switch from defense to offense for America’s ideals, history, and traditions: “Debunking Howard Zinn,” by Mary Grabar.
@POTUS 9B. Grabar, whose essays on education I’ve edited for many years now at several publications, does a meticulous takedown of Zinn’s lavishly selling, Hollywood-vaunted work of so-called history, “A People’s History of the United States.”
@POTUS 9C. Zinn’s book was first published in 1980 and is now estimated to have sold some 2.6 million copies. College Board’s rewrite of its Advanced Placement U.S. history course features Zinn’s book and embeds his anti-American philosophy.
@POTUS 9D. The tragedy of all this, of course, is that Zinn’s book is concentrated poison. Using a careful review of his source materials and claims, as evidenced by her nearly 1,000 footnotes, Grabar documents quite clearly and conclusively that Zinn is not only a plagiarist but a liar
@POTUS 9E. His presentation of key events and figures of American history, such as Christopher Columbus, slavery, the NAACP, World War II, and the civil rights movement, also straight-up regurgitates Communist propaganda.
@POTUS 9F. Here’s just one example, from page 222 and 223 in Grabar’s book. She shows how Zinn selectively quoted from American documents to make it look like the United States was interested getting Vietnam’s natural resources, ….
@POTUS 9F1. … not in defending it from a communism our nation understood to be evil and dangerous. The very same documents Zinn quotes actually prove the opposite of the points he makes with them when one reads the material he left out.
@POTUS 9G. “One wonders if Zinn had simply not read the volumes that he presumably edited [of the Pentagon Papers],” Grabar writes. “Either that or he deliberately left out key information.”
@POTUS 9H. As she shows, he used this falsifying tactic so many times in “A People’s History” it becomes hard to believe it’s an accident.
@POTUS 9I. Thus not only is Zinn’s book a pack of slipshod lies that even leftist historians will not stand behind, it is a pack of slipshod lies that appear to be told purposefully to set Americans at each others’ throats.
@POTUS 9J. And it has been quite effective. Many Americans believe the false and self-immolating narrative that their nation is fundamentally and unreformably racist, sexist, and genocidal.

There’s a LOT more in this great article here: thefederalist.com/2019/08/28/rep…
@POTUS 10. Here’s one in the “confirming what we already knew” category regarding the legacy media:

<quote>
@POTUS 10A. In the latest sign that major American media outlets are losing the public’s support, a majority believe it is appropriate for politicians to criticize reporters and hold them to the same scrutiny as those they cover.
@POTUS 10B. A new Rasmussen Reports survey also said most voters believe the average journalist is liberal, and few are conservative.
@POTUS 10C. The survey is an indictment of the media at a time when liberal outlets such as CNN and the New York Times are stepping up their attack on President Trump and congressional Republicans.
@POTUS 10D. The survey said 47% believe the typical reporter is more liberal than they are. Just 19% of voters believe reporters are more conservative than they are.

<unquote:

Read the rest here:
@POTUS 10E. And they think that we’re supposed to simply swallow the agit-prop spewed by the legacy media daily? We’re onto them, folks!
@POTUS 11. Lots of commentary on the DoJ IG report covering former FBI director Comey’s disgraceful conduct. I happen to like this early take:

<quote>
@POTUS 11A. For nearly three years now, those who promise to save us from the wicked clutches of President Donald Trump have bombarded America with lectures about the “rule of law.”
@POTUS 11B. Yet, over and over again, these self-styled champions of justice feel free to disregard the law whenever it suits them. The latest example is former FBI Director James Comey.
@POTUS 11C. A new report by the Office of the Inspector General for the Justice Department found that Comey had written FBI memos, illicitly passed them on to a lawyer friend, who in turn leaked them to a friendly NY Times reporter who had been spreading the Russian conspiracy theory.
@POTUS 11D. Why? Because Comey was interested in extracting revenge on the man who had fired him, Donald Trump.
@POTUS 11E. Comey, the report found, had leaked “investigative information, obtained during the course of FBI employment, in order to achieve a personally desired outcome.”
@POTUS 11F. That outcome, as Comey had admitted to Congress, was to “prompt the appointment of a special counsel” to investigate the president’s alleged conspiracy with the Russian government to win the 2016 election.
@POTUS 11G. By doing this, the DOJ inspector general, who is widely considered both meticulous and unbiased, found that Comey had “set a dangerous example” and “releas[ed] sensitive information” to “create public pressure for official action.”

<unquote>

Read the rest here:
@POTUS 11H. There will be much more coming out about this travesty, but one thing is certain: the IG’s report blows a hole in the smarmy narrative that @POTUS “obstructed justice” by firing Comey. We now know that there was a TON of solid rationale for that action!
@POTUS 12. We’ll wrap up this week’s summary with an excerpt from Judicial Watch’s Weekly Update because you’ll never see this this reported in the legacy media:

<quote>
@POTUS 12A. We have won a significant victory in our pursuit of the truth about Hillary Clinton’s misuse of official email and the Deep State’s efforts to cover it up.
@POTUS 12B. A federal judge granted us seven additional depositions, three interrogatories and four document requests related to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s use of a private, unauthorized email server.
@POTUS 12C. Hillary Clinton and her former top aide and current lawyer Cheryl Mills were given 30 days to oppose being deposed by Judicial Watch (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of State (No. 1:14-cv-01242)).
@POTUS 12D. The court rejected Justice and State Department arguments to protect Mrs. Clinton and the agencies from additional discovery and ordered agency lawyers to respond to our questions about their knowledge of the Clinton email issue.
@POTUS 12E. The court granted all of our requested discovery but gave Clinton and Mills 30 days to file any opposition to the requests to question them in person under oath.
@POTUS 12F. The new court-ordered discovery allows us to take testimony and gather evidence of Clinton’s handling of emails, specifically in an “after action memo” drafted by Heather Samuelson, Clinton’s senior advisor at State and White House liaison.
@POTUS 12G. The memo was created in December 2014 to memorialize the Clinton team’s processing of the Clinton emails.
@POTUS 12H. The discovery also asks when Justice and State Department attorneys learned about Clinton’s private email use; and what senior records-keeping officials at the State Department knew about Clinton’s emails and when they knew it.
